Young Nathan GALLUP, Jr. 
Young Nathan GALLUP, who died at age 23, was the adult son of Col. Nathan Gallup and his wife Sarah GIDDINGS. He died on 16 Sept. 1778. As you can see this is the same style gravestone as the other young people who died in this era. He is buried next to his mother and her gravestone is the same style. She died 18 Sept 1778 just two days after her son.

Just so that you appreciate Brian's excellent photography, here is photo that I took of this gravestone. You can just see the flag holder next to his gravestone in Brian's photograph.
